Roman Reigns and Robert Roode to collide in Tables Match

Last week’s SmackDown featured a Glorious return and a subsequent attack that ended with King Corbin’s court sending Roman Reigns viciously through the announce title.

Now Reigns will look to deliver royal justice to Robert Roode for his surprise assault in what promises to be a brutal Tables Match on Friday Night SmackDown. If that wasn’t big enough, WWE.com has now learned that the winner of tonight’s match will earn the right to choose the stipulation to Reigns’ match against King Corbin at Royal Rumble!

Has Roode bit off more than he can chew with The Big Dog? Or will King Corbin and Dolph Ziggler be waiting in the wings to hand Reigns another humiliating setback en route to the Jan. 26 pay-per-view?

John Morrison to return to the ring in battle with Big E

Eat your hearts out blue brand – John Morrison is getting back into the ring. The Guru of Greatness will have his hands full in his return, as Big E will be seeking payback for Kofi Kingston’s loss to The Miz on Jan. 10.

After weeks of speculation, Morrison joined his longtime friend on “Miz TV” and defended The Miz against the WWE Universe’s recent backlash. The New Day entered in an attempt to deliver a dose of reality to the former “Dirt Sheet” co-hosts, and Kingston met The Miz in the ring for a showdown.

The Prince of Parkour showed he still has the moves with an impressive flip from the ring steps that neutralized Big E and spurred his longtime friend to victory. Will Morrison bring the same intensity inside the squared circle, or will Big E’s strength be too much to overcome?

Kane returns to SmackDown!

Former WWE Champion and current Mayor of Knox County, Tennessee, Kane makes his return to SmackDown this Friday for a special appearance.

The Big Red Machine has competed in more Royal Rumble matches and has more eliminations than any Superstar in WWE history, and with the match on the horizon, could Kane be ready to make history once again?
